Ohioan Sean Troha scored another triple crown by becoming champion again – this time, in the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship and taking home $536,713 along the way, exceeding his initial $2 Million target with his booty from this tournament series.

Troha first made history at the World Series of Poker when she won the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-handed Championship for $1,246,770 in 2021.

Between his two championship wins in 2022 and 2023, he won an $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha event worth $298,192 that netted him the third victory overall.

Attracting 259 players, this Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship saw them create a prize pool worth $2,408,700. Of that sum, 39 of those present cashed their chips including Phil Ivey, Jesse Lonis Scott Seiver Alex Foxen Viktor Bloom & Jeff Madsen to name just some of them!

Last week, Seiver became one of only five individuals to achieve five WSOP bracelets through victories at various tournaments.

Troha also holds two World Series of Poker Circuit rings which he earned within four days at a 2014 Series in Chicago in October – one in a $580 Pot-Limit Omaha competition and another one for $1125 no-limit hold’em tournaments.

He revealed to a World Series of Poker reporter that he plans on engaging in all Pot-Limit Omaha he can during this Series.

Robert Mizrachi

Robert Mizrachi joined his brother Michael Mizrachi as members of the five World Series of Poker bracelet society after winning the $10,000 Dealer’s Choice Championship and taking home $333,045. It marked Robert’s third bracelet from events designated by WSOP as championships – previously earning 242,662 in 2017 at $10,000 Stud Championship and $768,889 for 10PL Omaha Championship in 2007.

He holds two victories in $1,500 events: 2014 Dealer’s Choice for $147.092 and Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better event of 2015. Both wins brought him over $251.102.

He now holds 98 cashes at World Series of Poker events totalling more than $4.6 million; while his lifetime poker tournament total stands at approximately $9.3 million.

Just like that, Robert has caught up to Michael, who holds three $50,000 Players Champion titles (2010-12-2018) even with 10 less WSOP cashes to his name than Robert’s own 10. As it currently stands, Michael leads Robert by $5.1 Million!

And Robert trails Michael by over $8 Million in terms of lifetime cashes; another distinction being all but one of Michael’s World Series of Poker victories were worth greater than $1 Million each.

Eric, Michael’s fraternal twin brother is still searching for his first piece of World Series of Poker (WSOP) hardware – don’t fret Eric; most of us feel your pain!
